It looks like the pre-baby wedding bells won’t ring for Jamie Lynn Spears and boyfriend Casey Aldridge. According to Star, the teenage parents-to-be are having such a hard time getting along, they may never wed.
“Jamie Lynn and Casey have been fighting non-stop about everything, from what to name the baby to what to eat for dinner,” a source told the magazine. “And now she's called off their wedding plans.”
Though the couple allegedly bought a house earlier this month, another Star source calls the “Zoey 101” star’s relationship with Casey “in and out,” and claims Jamie Lynn’s packed up and moved back into the Spears’ family home.
Brad Pitt motivates Chris MartinAs far as Chris Martin is concerned, Brad Pitt is a tough act to follow. Sure, the Coldplay frontman married Brad’s ex, Gwyneth Paltrow, four and a half years ago and even has two children with her. But he still measures himself against the man who came before him. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Chris explained how the ghost of Brad even helps motivate him as a musician.
On the subject of keeping his music fresh, Chris said, “You've got to be hungry.” But how does he find his hunger? “If your wife went out with Brad Pitt, you'd want to prove yourself, you know what I mean?”
Not really. It's easy to see how following in Brad’s footsteps might inspire Chris to keep Gwyneth all smiles, but how it connects to the latest Coldplay release is still a bit fuzzy. Then again, it’s not like Chris’ other music methods are exactly by-the-book, either.
“My problem is that I often take a sleeping pill in order to go to sleep, but then I get excited about a song, so I go and play music, and then (the sleeping pill) kind of kicks in halfway through,” Chris confessed. “I have a little corner where nobody can hear me in the middle of the night, and that's where I spend most of the nighttimes. I wake up the next morning and find these strange notes to myself ... I'm a little bit ashamed about it.”
Liz, Hugh, and the kids they never had
Though they ended their 13-year romance eight years ago, Liz Hurley and Hugh Grant remain close friends.
In fact, they’re so close that Liz named Hugh godfather to her son. But little Damian wasn’t the only child the model-turned-actress-turned-designer had on her mind when she spoke to Harper's Bazaar about her unique relationship with her ex.
“Sometimes Hugh and I can get morbid and say we could have had five children by now, because we were together since we were 21,” Liz explained. “But there was never a time when either of us wanted it. So you can’t really regret that.”
Now married to businessman Arun Nayar, Liz still counts her ex among the most important people in her life. “If I’m alone with Hugh, Arun and Damian, I can turn off my cell phone … No one else really matters,” she told the magazine.
Dish on the flyWith all the marriage rumors swirling around Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, the “Sexy Back” crooner wants to set the record straight. “I am not engaged,” Justin said in a quote posted to ContactMusic. And while he was at it, he added, “I'm not married. I'm not pregnant." Good to know! … The almost-relationship between Carrie Underwood and Ryan O’Nan is already over. When OK! magazine asked the country darling why “a handful of dates” never turned into something more for the pair, she responded, “I scare guys off.” … Eva Longoria Parker is playing the part of real-life desperate housewife when if comes to keeping tabs on her husband, NBA player Tony. “Eva brags that she knows what Tony is up to 24/7,” a pal told the National Enquirer. “He calls her within an hour after games, and if he plans on going out with his teammates, she knows where and who he's with, and he checks in regularly. She has him pretty well-trained!”
